The School Room. Further major changes by the 3rd Marquess in converting the West Pavilion into a gentleman’s quarter, included refurbishing the low wing room that linked to a smoking room and Turkish bath in the West Pavilion, which was renamed the School Room.


The room was completely remodelled by Shultz, who added restrained panelled walls, an 18th century inspired chimneypiece as well as delicate plasterwork of a more contemporary design of the time.

Under the 4th Marquess the School room became an office, and with its pleasant southerly and westerly views became one of the 4th Marquess’ favourite rooms.
